Naruto OC - Sarutobi Juushiro: 'Sup kid? by Jarein Naruto OC - Sarutobi Juushiro: 'Sup kid? by Jarein
So its been a while....lawl. Hows everyone?

More or less I did this updated version of my OC, as a case-study to work out some of my previous problems with scaling and physical proportions. I'm sure everyone can attest to my older work having problems in that department :)

Anyway! I modified his look slightly to streamline his appearance a bit more. I ditched the canvas vest, since it just over complicated the look; I added sewn-on leather segments to the shoulders of his coat; with a pair of workman's gloves to finish everything off. Since hes a melee combatant, it seemed more appropriate.

The finger snap with the medical chakra discharge was just something I thought would look cool, and helps reinforce his medical background. It serves no real purpose, other than to demonstrate Shiro's personality to be a cocky little asshole.

So.....improvement? Yes/no maybe?

Question: Does Juushiro grow up in the same generation as Boruto?

Naw, this guy was developed way way back. Like 09. But theres always wiggle room for new takes on the character in other settings.

Oh, ok. I just figured since he was Asuma's son he wouldn't be born until at least shippuden.

Looks sweet! From looking at your other work I'd say you improved! Do you do requests? :D

eh not really....its mainly because I just do this for fun. I'm just afraid to mix in requests since then it becomes a task, and then I become a total procrastinating douche and it never gets done. I just like being able to do these little design when the mood strikes me to try something. 

I hope that makes sense :( I'm sorry.

but I do appreciate your positive feedback. thanks again!

Haha right? Its funny too, I was working on art the whole time, but never submitted any of it till this one. I think as a goof I'll do a sketch dump just to show off the stuff that got gutted on the cutting room floor, haha!

Thanks for the welcome home!

I'd say it works pretty well. I never saw the original, but this is pretty well done.

well thanks! I haven't even begun some of my favorite ideas yet. Which one did you like the most?

thats easy, your assassins creed naruto crossover. I know you knocked it in your description, but seriously, the design has a good balance between the two franchises. And you have the proportions and perspective down pat. plus from looking at your other work, you're experimenting with complex poses, which is a great thing to start doing. more dynamic the better.

I'd say, at this stage I would try and get a digital rendering program to trace and enhance their definition and fidelity. Theres some freeware that can get you started if photoshop is a bit out of you range. Give it a try!

Cheers man!

I have the program (rockin' gimp right now), but I just can't trace with a mouse for the life of me, so I'm going to try and get myself a tablet this christmas and play with it. Probably even do some comics if I can manage it.

I actually do like how the Naruto one came out mostly, now that I look at it, I've just done it better in some old notebooks. I have a Link/Naruto crossover too that I really need to scan and upload sometime…

Improvement? Definitely yes. I always love scrolling through your gallery to see how your style changes with every new deviation, and how your characters are slowly carved from the rough block of marble to smooth perfection.

...oh my god that was corny as hell i'm so sorry

no thats not corny at all!

honestly, I know exactly what youre talking about. Artists tend to think like that, so never apologize haha.

I really appreciate the attention you've paid to my gallery, taking time to notice the evolution of my character design. Honestly, I sometimes wonder if I make people angry by doing this, sorta like how Lucas changed shit with his work over the years.

So feedback like this helps a great deal, since I know in my heart, I'm my own worst critic. Thanks again my dear, and enjoy your holiday!

I love seeing people improve both their art and characters, it makes me happy like a mother watching her children grow up.

I try my hand in critiquing sometimes, even though most of it tends to focus on the good things, ahahahh-- ,,

Happy holidays to you too~~
